Premier Geocoin Race

Recommended Posts

Res,

I really like the which coin has lead and how many days...thats cool :D

I'd funnel you a beer if I could :huh:

Great job but my coins aren't moving :ph34r:

Congrats on the upcoming wedding. Have a good time afterwards too. You'll have plenty of e-mail when you get back :huh:

I'm willing to add any other interesting stats to the race page or make changes if necessary, if anyone can think of anything else. Once most late entries arrive, I'll remove the initial entry rule stuff.

 

I haven't mentioned it yet, but we once again have a new leader in the race. "Run, Chicken, RUN!!! (2)" has taken a commanding lead.

 

We also may have our first casualty as the cache that "SERGIO'S RACER COIN #2" was in appears to have gone missing.

Rather unfortunate but we have our first casuality from this cache. Hopefully the racing coin will turn up.

 

edit to say Res beat me to it

One of my coins just moved another 60 miles!! HOORAY! It is now a little over 100 miles logged!

 

One of the other ones has been "Discovered" hopefully someone will come along soon and move it.

 

GO RACERS!!

I picked up 2 coins from the race this morning. They were both in the same cache: The British are Coming! GCVZR5

I dropped Myth's World Geocoin in GCVNTF Island View

I dropped Boo's PA Geocoin inGCVXR8 The Odawa

They were not moved very far but at least they are visiting another cache.

Good luck to both racers on your journey!

One coin was placed in a cache today picked up right after that! It is on fire!

 

GO! GO! GO!

One of mine still hasn't started . . . . . But the other is on it's way to another country, So watch out!

 

I have your coin in my caching bag. It will start the race in Quebec next week. So it will have the distinction of being the only coin in the race to start outside of Ontario. <_<

7 people have now grabbed or discovered my coin and are posting it between each other! <_< Why???? This has been going on for 10 days! So it has done next to no mileage and visited only 2 caches! Don't think this coin is going to get very far! :lol:

Did you send them an email explaining that this coin is not a keeper and to please release it?

Same here. One of my coins has been discovered a lot recently. If only there was a prize for it...

 

A few days ago, I've sent them a mail, asking to move the coin. But no reply, yet. :(

I'm 39 th :P & tied for 91st :( . Cant get the cacher to place my last place coin even after sending a nice e-mail :rolleyes:

Maybe both my coins will be fast finishers :(

My coin got off to a fast start. :rolleyes:

Then it got dropped in a cache that's only had 4 visitors so far this year. :( No one has been to it since the cachers who dropped my racer.

Maybe I should have made more than 1 entry.

Maybe I should have made more than 1 entry.

 

Still not too late to enter...Someone just entered 3 more coins the other day. I haven't given a cut off point yet as to when new entries won't be allowed, and not really sure if I see a need to...of course late entries may have a slight disadvantage, but only initially.

 

Latest standings are posted...only 3 coins don't have the updated mileage reflected on the race page at the moment, because the coin pages aren't up to date yet.

I am going to enter the contest soon, but I want to enter my own coins which won't be ready till July :rolleyes:

 

oh well... better late than never!

 

btw, how exactly do the race coins go into caches? Does the organizer hide them in a specific cache?

Almost all the coins started out at the 2nd Annual COG Spring Fling event cache on Saturday May 13th. Any subsequent Toronto geocoins entered into the race, also start off from that event, since the coins were in fact there. Any other late entries start out by whatever cache I decide to put them in the next time I am out geocaching, or if I hand them off to someone else to start their journey.

I put it on a rather large laminated card which I attached to it! But I will be sending this cacher an email. Thing is I don't want to sound like I am being a pain!

Maybe they can't read! :( Serously just tell them more about the race, your current position and how he or she can help you along by placing the coin in a cache soon. No need to be a pain.

Why? My coin is leading and still in Canada.

As long as ist travels from the west to the east coast and vice versa, I don't mind if it doesn't cross the border :)

uh, yes it is :ninja:

I didn't keep the e-mails so I can't go back and do it. RES will have them all when he comes back on the 12th.

I just took up the mileage side of it because most people keep up with that side of it and it was easier without having the database file that res has.

Sorry but you'll just have to wait for res to update it when he gets back or you can go look at every geocoin in the race :D

 

...off to work now
